Choncho's Tacos

Rodarte x Target cardigan, vintage Lanvin sweater, vintage skirt, Chanel boots, Banana Republic lace tights, Forever 21 headband, Triskaidekaphobia necklace

Yesterday morning, Jimmy and I headed out to Brooklyn to meet our friends Forrest and Allegra at Forrest's newly opened restaurant, Choncho's Tacos. Forrest has been running his taco stand out of the Brooklyn Flea since last summer, and after the incredible success, he has opened up a permanent space on a loading dock at 170 Tillary Street (on the edge of DUMBO and Fort Greene). While the Flea outpost remains open every weekend, the new space is open Tuesday through Sunday, with an expansive sit down space, a gallery with rotating exhibitions, and two fireplaces to keep it warm and cozy during the winter. I ordered my favorite dish, Choncho's classic fried fish tacos, and even though I meant to take a picture of it before I ate, I immediately forgot the plan and gulped the whole thing down. Make sure to take a trip out to Brooklyn to try them yourselves, or stop by the stand the up the next time you're at the Flea.
